El restaurante "Osteria Franciscana", del cocinero Massimo Bottura, en Módena (Italia) ha sido reconocido hoy como el mejor del mundo, mientras que el español "El Celler de Can Roca" ha sido segundo y el "Mirazur" francés tercero en los premios "The50 best" de los 50 mejores restaurantes del mundo.Los galardones han sido entregados esta noche durante una gala celebrada en el Palacio Euskalduna de Bilbao, y aunque han cambiado los lugares de los primeros, no han tenido muchas novedades. Lo más destacado, el triunfo de la cocina mediterránea, que ha copado el podio.La "Osteria Franciscana" fue segundo el año pasado y primero en la edición del 2016. Se ha premiado así a un chef muy reconocido y pasional, que ha reinventado platos de la cocina italiana como la lasaña.Bottura juega con las tradiciones y experimenta con ingredientes de la región de donde proviene, incluyendo tratar el queso "parmiggiano-reggiano" en diferentes temperaturas, texturas y sabores.Tras recibir el galardón, Massimo Bottura ha destacado la evolución positiva de su restaurante en los últimos años: "Estamos evolucionando; somos un equipo más fuerte en el que trabajamos todos juntos y ahora somos un mejor restaurante".Para Bottura, "Es increíble ser el número uno de toda la comunidad de chefs", y este éxito es "como un terremoto" para todo su equipo de trabajo. Lo siguiente, después de recibir este reconocimiento, es "seguir siendo normales", ha añadido.Según el mejor chef del mundo, en términos gastronómicos, "es muy importante hacer visible lo invisible".Bottura se ha mostrado "impresionado" por el hecho de que turistas chinos se paren frente a su restaurante de Modena y que incluso algunos comensales le paren por la calle para darle las gracias.Se ha mostrado satisfecho de que la comunidad de cocineros esté considerando de nuevo a Italia como un referente gastronómico, y ha dicho que siente que no se trata solo de su trabajo sino de la cocina de su país en general.El gerundense "El Celler", de los hermanos Roca, tercero el año pasado, ha quedado segundo este año. Los Roca, con el cocinero Joan, el sumiller Josep y el pastelero Jordi, son otros indiscutibles de la alta gastronomía mundial.Joan Roca ha mostrado su "gran satisfacción" por pasar al segundo puesto, y ha bromeado con el "pique" con Bottura, "con el que me llevo muy bien. Lo importante es mantenerse año tras año en las primeras posiciones".Tercero ha sido "Mirazur", ubicado en el pueblo de Menton, en el interior de la costa azul francesa, en el que su joven cocinero, el argentino Mauro Colagreco, basa sus platos en las hortalizas y flores de su propio huerto. Sube un puesto desde el cuarto del año pasado.Tras recibir el premio, Colagreco ha comentado que estaba "muy feliz. Tengo una alegría enorme por estar en el top-ten de la gastronomía mundial, mañana tendremos que abrir y será un día con mucha responsabilidad por representar a la elite"."Pasar del cuarto al tercero es un gran logro porque es una medalla olímpica. La cocina latinoamericana tiene un gran lugar en el mundo, como la peruana, que se merece los premios, aunque yo hago cocina mediterránea", ha comentado el argentino.Al cuarto lugar ha descendido el líder del año pasado, el neoyorquino "Eleven Madison park", del chef Daniel Humm.Quinto ha sido el extrovertido cocinero hindú Gaggan Anand, aunque trabaja en Tailandia, en el "Gaggan" de Bankgkok. Ayer dijo que su sabor preferido era "picante, picante y picante".Dos peruanos, de Lima, se han consolidado en la lista: el "Central" de Virgilio Martínez ha sido sexto y mejor de Latinoamérica. Fue quinto el año pasado.Su vecino limeño, el "Maido", se ha llevado el séptimo puesto para su cocina nikkei, peruano-japonesa, de su cocinero "Misha" Tsumura, que sube un puesto respecto al año anterior.El octavo puesto ha sido para el parisino "Arpege" de Alain Passar, otro experto en vegetales, y el noveno y décimo puesto para dos restaurantes españoles, vascos, el donostiarra "Mugaritz" de Andoni Luis Aduriz, noveno, y el asador vizcaíno "Etxebarri", de Víctor Arginzoniz, décimo.Dos mexicanos, "Quintonil" de Jorge Vallejo, y "Pujol", de Enrique Olvera, han subido hasta los puestos 11 y 13, desde el 22 y 20 del año pasado, respectivamente.La mayor novedad de la lista -ha sido la mejor entrada, llegando al puesto 18-, ha sido para "Disfrutar", de los chefs Mateu Casañas, Oriol Castro y Eduard Xatruch, que abrió sus puertas en diciembre de 2014 en Barcelona. Es uno de los "herederos" de El Bulli, por donde pasaron los tres, con una cocina divertida que no se pasa en el precio.Entre los latinoamericanos han destacado también "Boragó", de Rodolfo Guzman, en Santiago de Chile, el 27, antes el 42; el brasileño "D.O.M.", de Álex Atala, que ocupó el puesto 30 -ha bajado desde el 16 del año pasado; y el peruano "Astrid y Gastón", de Gastón Acurio, el 39, que ha recibido el premio a la trayectoria;El galardón de mejor chef pastelero se fue para el joven francés Cedric Grolet y el restaurante que se mereció el premio de la sostenibilidad fue el "Azurmendi vizcaíno" de Eneko Atxa.El ránking de los 100 mejores restaurantes se elabora a partir de los votos de poco más de 1.000 personas "del sector" elegidas por la revista "Restaurant".

Brazil have been given a scare ahead of Friday’s clash with Costa Rica after Neymar missed training for a second successive day. The news came as Philippe Coutinho warned his Brazil team-mates that there would be no margin for error against the Costa Ricans in St Petersburg following their disappointing 1-1 draw in their opening game against Switzerland on Sunday. Neymar, who had sat out training on Monday, was unable to take part in Tuesday's session after complaining of pain to his right ankle. The Paris St-Germain forward, who had managed only a few warm up exercises, was seen kicking a ball away in frustration as he hobbled off in the company of Brazil physiotherapist, Bruno Manek, at the team’s base in Sochi. Rodrigo Lasmar, Brazil’s doctor, said Neymar would receive more treatment on Wednesday morning but was due to return to full training in afternoon, with Brazil confident the player will be fit to play on Friday. Coutinho said Neymar’s fitness was not a worry and the pain he was feeling was “normal”. URGENTE! Em Sochi, Neymar sente e deixa o treino da Seleção mancando nesta terça-feira (19). Confira o momento! #Copa2018pic.twitter.com/ZNRboOu4Hf— Esporte Interativo (@Esp_Interativo) 19 June 2018 But the situation is still a concern for Brazil, not least as their coach, Tite, had warned before the Switzerland game that Neymar was “not 100 per cent fit” after fracturing the fifth metatarsal in his right foot in February and would require careful handling in Russia. The Swiss result has also increased the pressure to deliver against Costa Rica. “We will treat the game like it’s the final game,” said Coutinho, the Barcelona and former Liverpool forward whose stunning strike had put Brazil in front against Switzerland. “We are aware we have no more room for error.” Brazil blamed Neymar’s problem on his treatment by Switzerland when he was fouled 10 times, more than any player at a World Cup since Alan Shearer at France ‘98. However, it was after Neymar slammed his right foot into Stephan Lichtsteiner on the follow through from a shot that hit the side-netting in the second half that he was left limping. Neymar was fouled 10 times in the draw with Switzerland Credit: Reuters Neymar, who is under acute pressure to help Brazil atone their 7-1 humiliation by Germany in the World Cup semi finals on home soil four years ago, finished the game but was seen hobbling out of the Rostov Arena after urging referees to “do their jobs” and provide more protection. “Neymar complained of ankle pains as a result of the number of fouls suffered against Switzerland,” Lasmar said. “He was referred to physical therapy, and he stayed there today and he will be there tomorrow morning, but he will train tomorrow afternoon.” Any issues with Neymar will increase the onus on Coutinho, who said Tite had addressed the need for the five time world champions to improve their finishing against Costa Rica as well as Serbia next Wednesday. “We already discussed this matter [with Tite]. Now the important thing is to be mentally strong and concentrate on what’s up next. Brazil’s strong point is the collective. Obviously in one game a specific player could steal the show but our real strength is the collective.”

Luis Suarez was the beneficiary of another air malfunction for Saudi Arabia as Uruguay became the second team to join hosts Russia in the last 16. An engine on the plane carrying Saudi Arabia’s squad had caught fire as it came in to land at Rostov’s Platov International Airport ahead of this match. Fortunately, no one on board came to any harm but that would not prove the end of the team’s troubles in the air. Only Mohammed Alowais will know what he was trying to achieve as the Saudi Arabia goalkeeper came careering off his line, jumped more in hope than any expectation of catching Carlos Sanchez’s corner and watched as the ball sailed over his head and into the path of Suarez to score what would prove the decisive intervention of a closely fought game. It was the Barcelona forward’s 52nd goal on his 100th appearance for his country, quelling some of the criticism that greeted his performance against Egypt, and he celebrated by putting the ball up his shirt and sucking his thumb in tribute to his wife, Sofia Balbe, who is thought to be pregnant with their third child. Scorer Suarez celebrates his winner Credit: Reuters “I am very pleased to have scored but the main thing was to win to secure progression to the next round,” Suarez said. “We have seen many results at this World Cup that have been rather surprising so are delighted to have got through. But we must still fine-tune a few things as we have not been at our absolute best.” Uruguay will face Russia in Samara on Monday to determine who tops Group A but if the hosts have breezed unexpectedly through the group, it has been more of a battle for the South Americans. They required a stoppage time goal to beat Egypt and, while largely comfortable here, encountered an obstinate Saudi Arabia side determined to atone for their shambolic 5-0 defeat to Russia that had sparked a national inquest. By the end, they were left to rue one glaring error which a player of Suarez’s quality was never going to pass on. This was still not vintage Suarez by any means, even if his work rate could not be faulted, but then it was not vintage Uruguay either. They did enough, and could have scored one or two more, but they found the going tough for the mostpart against a Saudi Arabia team that was far more organised, compact and diligent in their work than they had been during that debacle in Moscow last week. They may be going home but they at least restored some pride. Shortly after Suarez scored, Saudi almost equalised. Martin Caceras was caught flat-footed and the lively Hatan Bahbri stole in only to direct his half volley over from Yasser Al-Shahrani’s fine cross. Three of the players, including goalkeeper Abdullah Al-Muaiouf, who had started against Russia were dropped after being rather sinisterly warned they would face “penalties” when they returned home. So Al-Muaiouf was probably mightily relieved in that respect that he was not responsible for the mistake that gifted Suarez a straight-forward finish, although it was a shame for Al-Owais as he otherwise equipped him well and made a fine save late on to deny Edinson Cavani. It was just not Cavani’s day. He stroked over a fine cross for Sanchez just after the hour mark that should have resulted in a goal but the Uruguay midfielder, who had made a lung-busting 50 yard dash into the box, got under the ball and headed over. Yet otherwise Cavani was well-shackled by a Saudi Arabia defence unrecognisable from the one that had been blown apart by Russia. Neither Cavani nor Suarez have yet to really hit their stride in this tournament. Yet Suarez ran himself into the ground and the goal will do a lot for his confidence. “Luis fought hard and has special traits that he’s showcased at all his clubs,” Oscar Tabarez, the Uruguay coach, said. “He always shows his character and responsibility and takes on that pressure and lives with it all the time. He is fundamental to us, he always gives hope to the team and has an enormous capacity to score goals.” 6:12PM Still, at least the match had a hero It was that nice Luis Suarez.

He looked chunky in the first game, I thought, although that might have been the all-white kit. Very unforgiving, is all-white, as I found to my own personal cost after an ill-advised foray into the world of the Man From Delmonte linen suit a few summers back. Anyway, he was off his game in the first match and Uruguay as a whole were so-so against Egypt, needing a late winner from Jose Gimenez to win by the single goal. Talking of the first game, though, Saudi Arabia were pure mince. They are the only team I have seen so far who had nothing going for them: lumpen centre backs, no pace, no invention, no clue really. Time will tell whether that 5-0 by Russia is evidence of Ruskie excellence or Saudi hopelessness but either way, I would be absolutely astonished if they get through the group. Uruguay can do themselves a massive favour by winning today and rendering their clash with Russia a formality / decider as to who tops group A. Uruguay have an experienced, quality defence with the likes of Diego Godin, they have Edinson Cavani and Suarez up front, that is a Champions League semis-level strike force. Suarez can win his 100th cap in this match (team news will be with us shortly). He'll be the sixth Uruguayan to do so. Carlos Sanchez (not to be confused with the Colombian Carlos Sanchez who was sent off yesteryday) may play right wing, Cristian Rodriguez left. To that point, Group A is paired with Group B for the last 16: so, assuming that goes to form, would you rather play Spain or Portugal? Portugal are currently leading Morocco 1-0 but that game looks far from settled. Why not check in with Ben Bloom's live blog while we wait? For those whose thoughts are only for England, here is all the reaction to their group opener. Tunisia 1 England 2 | Kane snatches winning World Cup start for Southgate's men
Luis Suarez nudges unconvincing Uruguay into second round as Saudi Arabia slump out
Luis Suarez was the beneficiary of another air malfunction for Saudi Arabia as Uruguay became the second team to join hosts Russia in the last 16. An engine on the plane carrying Saudi Arabia’s squad had caught fire as it came in to land at Rostov’s Platov International Airport ahead of this match. Fortunately, no one on board came to any harm but that would not prove the end of the team’s troubles in the air. Only Mohammed Alowais will know what he was trying to achieve as the Saudi Arabia goalkeeper came careering off his line, jumped more in hope than any expectation of catching Carlos Sanchez’s corner and watched as the ball sailed over his head and into the path of Suarez to score what would prove the decisive intervention of a closely fought game. It was the Barcelona forward’s 52nd goal on his 100th appearance for his country, quelling some of the criticism that greeted his performance against Egypt, and he celebrated by putting the ball up his shirt and sucking his thumb in tribute to his wife, Sofia Balbe, who is thought to be pregnant with their third child. Scorer Suarez celebrates his winner Credit: Reuters “I am very pleased to have scored but the main thing was to win to secure progression to the next round,” Suarez said. “We have seen many results at this World Cup that have been rather surprising so are delighted to have got through. But we must still fine-tune a few things as we have not been at our absolute best.” Uruguay will face Russia in Samara on Monday to determine who tops Group A but if the hosts have breezed unexpectedly through the group, it has been more of a battle for the South Americans. They required a stoppage time goal to beat Egypt and, while largely comfortable here, encountered an obstinate Saudi Arabia side determined to atone for their shambolic 5-0 defeat to Russia that had sparked a national inquest. By the end, they were left to rue one glaring error which a player of Suarez’s quality was never going to pass on. This was still not vintage Suarez by any means, even if his work rate could not be faulted, but then it was not vintage Uruguay either. They did enough, and could have scored one or two more, but they found the going tough for the mostpart against a Saudi Arabia team that was far more organised, compact and diligent in their work than they had been during that debacle in Moscow last week. They may be going home but they at least restored some pride. Shortly after Suarez scored, Saudi almost equalised. Martin Caceras was caught flat-footed and the lively Hatan Bahbri stole in only to direct his half volley over from Yasser Al-Shahrani’s fine cross. Three of the players, including goalkeeper Abdullah Al-Muaiouf, who had started against Russia were dropped after being rather sinisterly warned they would face “penalties” when they returned home. So Al-Muaiouf was probably mightily relieved in that respect that he was not responsible for the mistake that gifted Suarez a straight-forward finish, although it was a shame for Al-Owais as he otherwise equipped him well and made a fine save late on to deny Edinson Cavani. It was just not Cavani’s day. He stroked over a fine cross for Sanchez just after the hour mark that should have resulted in a goal but the Uruguay midfielder, who had made a lung-busting 50 yard dash into the box, got under the ball and headed over. Yet otherwise Cavani was well-shackled by a Saudi Arabia defence unrecognisable from the one that had been blown apart by Russia. Neither Cavani nor Suarez have yet to really hit their stride in this tournament. Yet Suarez ran himself into the ground and the goal will do a lot for his confidence. “Luis fought hard and has special traits that he’s showcased at all his clubs,” Oscar Tabarez, the Uruguay coach, said. “He always shows his character and responsibility and takes on that pressure and lives with it all the time. He is fundamental to us, he always gives hope to the team and has an enormous capacity to score goals.” 6:12PM Still, at least the match had a hero It was that nice Luis Suarez.

It was the Barcelona forward’s 52nd goal on his 100th appearance for his country, quelling some of the criticism that greeted his performance against Egypt, and he celebrated by putting the ball up his shirt and sucking his thumb in tribute to his wife, Sofia Balbe, who is thought to be pregnant with their third child. Scorer Suarez celebrates his winner Credit: Reuters “I am very pleased to have scored but the main thing was to win to secure progression to the next round,” Suarez said. “We have seen many results at this World Cup that have been rather surprising so are delighted to have got through. But we must still fine-tune a few things as we have not been at our absolute best.” Uruguay will face Russia in Samara on Monday to determine who tops Group A but if the hosts have breezed unexpectedly through the group, it has been more of a battle for the South Americans. They required a stoppage time goal to beat Egypt and, while largely comfortable here, encountered an obstinate Saudi Arabia side determined to atone for their shambolic 5-0 defeat to Russia that had sparked a national inquest. By the end, they were left to rue one glaring error which a player of Suarez’s quality was never going to pass on. This was still not vintage Suarez by any means, even if his work rate could not be faulted, but then it was not vintage Uruguay either. They did enough, and could have scored one or two more, but they found the going tough for the mostpart against a Saudi Arabia team that was far more organised, compact and diligent in their work than they had been during that debacle in Moscow last week. They may be going home but they at least restored some pride. Shortly after Suarez scored, Saudi almost equalised. Martin Caceras was caught flat-footed and the lively Hatan Bahbri stole in only to direct his half volley over from Yasser Al-Shahrani’s fine cross. Three of the players, including goalkeeper Abdullah Al-Muaiouf, who had started against Russia were dropped after being rather sinisterly warned they would face “penalties” when they returned home. So Al-Muaiouf was probably mightily relieved in that respect that he was not responsible for the mistake that gifted Suarez a straight-forward finish, although it was a shame for Al-Owais as he otherwise equipped him well and made a fine save late on to deny Edinson Cavani. It was just not Cavani’s day. He stroked over a fine cross for Sanchez just after the hour mark that should have resulted in a goal but the Uruguay midfielder, who had made a lung-busting 50 yard dash into the box, got under the ball and headed over. Yet otherwise Cavani was well-shackled by a Saudi Arabia defence unrecognisable from the one that had been blown apart by Russia. Neither Cavani nor Suarez have yet to really hit their stride in this tournament. Yet Suarez ran himself into the ground and the goal will do a lot for his confidence. “Luis fought hard and has special traits that he’s showcased at all his clubs,” Oscar Tabarez, the Uruguay coach, said. “He always shows his character and responsibility and takes on that pressure and lives with it all the time. He is fundamental to us, he always gives hope to the team and has an enormous capacity to score goals.” 6:12PM Still, at least the match had a hero It was that nice Luis Suarez.

He looked chunky in the first game, I thought, although that might have been the all-white kit. Very unforgiving, is all-white, as I found to my own personal cost after an ill-advised foray into the world of the Man From Delmonte linen suit a few summers back. Anyway, he was off his game in the first match and Uruguay as a whole were so-so against Egypt, needing a late winner from Jose Gimenez to win by the single goal. Talking of the first game, though, Saudi Arabia were pure mince. They are the only team I have seen so far who had nothing going for them: lumpen centre backs, no pace, no invention, no clue really. Time will tell whether that 5-0 by Russia is evidence of Ruskie excellence or Saudi hopelessness but either way, I would be absolutely astonished if they get through the group. Uruguay can do themselves a massive favour by winning today and rendering their clash with Russia a formality / decider as to who tops group A. Uruguay have an experienced, quality defence with the likes of Diego Godin, they have Edinson Cavani and Suarez up front, that is a Champions League semis-level strike force. Suarez can win his 100th cap in this match (team news will be with us shortly). He'll be the sixth Uruguayan to do so. Carlos Sanchez (not to be confused with the Colombian Carlos Sanchez who was sent off yesteryday) may play right wing, Cristian Rodriguez left. To that point, Group A is paired with Group B for the last 16: so, assuming that goes to form, would you rather play Spain or Portugal? Portugal are currently leading Morocco 1-0 but that game looks far from settled. Why not check in with Ben Bloom's live blog while we wait?

Luis Suarez nudges unconvincing Uruguay into second round as Saudi Arabia slump out
Luis Suarez was the beneficiary of another air malfunction for Saudi Arabia as Uruguay became the second team to join hosts Russia in the last 16. An engine on the plane carrying Saudi Arabia’s squad had caught fire as it came in to land at Rostov’s Platov International Airport ahead of this match. Fortunately, no one on board came to any harm but that would not prove the end of the team’s troubles in the air. Only Mohammed Alowais will know what he was trying to achieve as the Saudi Arabia goalkeeper came careering off his line, jumped more in hope than any expectation of catching Carlos Sanchez’s corner and watched as the ball sailed over his head and into the path of Suarez to score what would prove the decisive intervention of a closely fought game. It was the Barcelona forward’s 52nd goal on his 100th appearance for his country, quelling some of the criticism that greeted his performance against Egypt, and he celebrated by putting the ball up his shirt and sucking his thumb in tribute to his wife, Sofia Balbe, who is thought to be pregnant with their third child.

They've got a freekick, central, about 30 yards out. 4:03PM 3 mins: Uruguay 0 Saudi Arabia 0 That's a handy ball forward from SA, but the formidable Godin has read it well. Suarez has unleashed one: Cristian Rodriguez knocked it down for him, and Saudi Arabia defender Ali Albulayhi did well to get in the way. Attempt Saved: Uruguay 0 - 0 Saudi Arabia (Luis Suárez, 2 min) 4:01PM 1 mins: Uruguay 0 Saudi Arabia 0 The South Americans in their pale blue, the Saudis are in white. Uruguay enjoying a few early touches at the back, allowed to stroke it about. No press from the Saudis. 4:00PM Ready to play football Credit: BBC 3:57PM Saudi one No messing.

If so, here is our handy guide to what you might fancy a punt on Betting guide: predictions and tips for Uruguay v Saudi Arabia > Our betting boffins reckon that Suarez and his mates might well stick plenty past the Saudis and have suggested a wager accordingly... 2:37PM Here is the Group A table 2:16PM Is Luis Suarez still a bit fat? He looked chunky in the first game, I thought, although that might have been the all-white kit. Very unforgiving, is all-white, as I found to my own personal cost after an ill-advised foray into the world of the Man From Delmonte linen suit a few summers back. Anyway, he was off his game in the first match and Uruguay as a whole were so-so against Egypt, needing a late winner from Jose Gimenez to win by the single goal. Talking of the first game, though, Saudi Arabia were pure mince. They are the only team I have seen so far who had nothing going for them: lumpen centre backs, no pace, no invention, no clue really. Time will tell whether that 5-0 by Russia is evidence of Ruskie excellence or Saudi hopelessness but either way, I would be absolutely astonished if they get through the group. Uruguay can do themselves a massive favour by winning today and rendering their clash with Russia a formality / decider as to who tops group A. Uruguay have an experienced, quality defence with the likes of Diego Godin, they have Edinson Cavani and Suarez up front, that is a Champions League semis-level strike force. Suarez can win his 100th cap in this match (team news will be with us shortly). He'll be the sixth Uruguayan to do so. Carlos Sanchez (not to be confused with the Colombian Carlos Sanchez who was sent off yesteryday) may play right wing, Cristian Rodriguez left. To that point, Group A is paired with Group B for the last 16: so, assuming that goes to form, would you rather play Spain or Portugal? Portugal are currently leading Morocco 1-0 but that game looks far from settled. Why not check in with Ben Bloom's live blog while we wait?
